MWM: This may play out very well against the backdrop of multiple indictments filed during October against many members of the Bushita Regime. The Great Ramadan Offensive could add great impetus to end the Tragedy in the Middle East, or, it could kill the movement to push Bush out of office and repolarize support for the Imperial Faction. Timing and synchronicity is a most curious thing, and sometimes the whole world is nothing more than a fragile reed twisting and bending unpredictably in the gusty wind of wind. I think however, that the odds are very strong that all vectors are converging to end Bush's tenure. In the end, I believe he will fulfill the 20 year "curse" which sits death or hardship on Presidents who are elected at the beginning of a decade every 20 years, as in 1900, 1920, 1940, 1960, 1980, and now...

by OfficialWire NewsDesk
NEW YORK, NY -- (OfficialWire) -- 10/05/05 --  World Can't Waita growing national organization with a plan to bring millions of people out of their anguished paralysis and into a conscious resistance movementvows not stop until the Bush regime is driven out of office. On November 2, 2005, it begins. No Work, No Schoolpeople will gather in their city and town squares across the country and move out from there?
World Can't Wait spokesperson, Sunsara Taylor said: "Years from now, when children want to know the character of their parentsas they lived in a country that was normalizing torture, moving to condemn half the population to enforced motherhood or back-alley dangers, attacking science and critical thought, enforcing a narrow brand of fundamentalist religion and bigotry, disenfranchising and then abandoning hundreds of thousands of Black people in an illegitimate 'election' and a foreseen natural disaster, waging wars of preemption based on outrageous lies, snatching people off the street without lawyers or charges, and no major office-holder was making a stinkthey will ask, 'Were you in the streets that day, on November 2, 2005'?"
Ads for November 2 are playing nationwide on Air America radio. Organizers are making plans for the day in over 30 cities, as well as colleges and high schools nationwide. November 2 will bring out students, workers, artists, professionals, people from all walks of life who understand that there will be no saviors from the Democratic Party, and 'that which you do not resist, you will learn or be forcedto accept.' November 2 is the day America will begin to turn.
In New York City, people will gather at Union Square at 12 noon.
Sunsara Taylor is speaking on radio and TV and campuses nationwide in the weeks running up to November 2. She has appeared on Hannity & Colmes, Fox and Friends, Air America, CNN, NY1, New York Times, and many other media outlets.

The World Can't Wait!
Drive Out the Bush Regime!
Mobilize for November 2, 2005
YOUR GOVERNMENT, on the basis of outrageous lies, is waging a murderous and utterly illegitimate war in Iraq, with other countries in their sights.
YOUR GOVERNMENT is openly torturing people, and justifying it.
YOUR GOVERNMENT puts people in jail on the merest suspicion, refusing them lawyers, and either holding them indefinitely or deporting them in the dead of night.
YOUR GOVERNMENT is moving each day closer to a theocracy, where a narrow and hateful brand of Christian fundamentalism will rule.
YOUR GOVERNMENT suppresses the science that doesn’t fit its religious, political and economic agenda, forcing present and future generations to pay a terrible price.
YOUR GOVERNMENT enforces a culture of greed, bigotry, intolerance and ignorance. People look at all this and think of Hitler — and they are right to do so.
The Bush regime is setting out to radically remake society very quickly, in a fascist way, and for generations to come. We must act now; the future is in the balance. Millions and millions are deeply disturbed and outraged by this. They recognize the need for a vehicle to express this outrage, yet they cannot find it; politics as usual cannot meet the enormity of the challenge, and people sense this.
There is not going to be some magical "pendulum swing." People who steal elections and believe they're on a "mission from God" will not go without a fight.
There is not going to be some savior from the Democratic Party. This whole idea of putting our hopes and energies into "leaders" who tell us to seek common ground with fascists and religious fanatics is proving every day to be a disaster, and actually serves to demobilize people.
But silence and paralysis are NOT acceptable. That which you will not resist and mobilize to stop, you will learn — or be forced — to accept. There is no escaping it: the whole disastrous course of this Bush regime must be STOPPED. And we must take the responsibility to do it.
And there is a way. We are talking about something on a scale that can really make a huge change in this country and in the world. We need more than fighting Bush's outrages one at a time, constantly losing ground to the whole onslaught. We must, and can, aim to create a political situation where the Bush regime's program is repudiated, where Bush himself is driven from office, and where the whole direction he has been taking society is reversed. We, in our millions, must and can take responsibility to change the course of history.
To that end, on November 2, the first anniversary of Bush's "re-election", we will take the first major step in this by organizing a truly massive day of resistance all over this country. People everywhere will walk out of school, they will take off work, they will come to the downtowns and town squares and set out from there, going through the streets and calling on many more to JOIN US. They will repudiate this criminal regime, making a powerful statement: "NO! THIS REGIME DOES NOT REPRESENT US! AND WE WILL DRIVE IT OUT!"
November 2 must be a massive and public proclamation that WE REFUSE TO BE RULED IN THIS WAY. November 2 must call out to the tens of millions more who are now agonizing and disgusted. November 2 will be the beginning — a giant first step in forcing Bush to step down, and a powerful announcement that we will not stop until he does so - and it will join with and give support and heart to people all over the globe who so urgently need and want this regime to be stopped.
This will not be easy. If we speak the truth, they will try to silence us. If we act, they will to try to stop us. But we speak for the majority, here and around the world, and as we get this going we are going to reach out to the people who have been so badly fooled by Bush and we are NOT going to stop.
The point is this: history is full of examples where people who had right on their side fought against tremendous odds and were victorious. And it is also full of examples of people passively hoping to wait it out, only to get swallowed up by a horror beyond what they ever imagined. The future is unwritten. WHICH ONE WE GET IS UP TO US.
These next days are crucial. The call you are reading has to get out to millions right away — on the internet, passed out as flyers in communities, published as ads in newspapers. DO NOT WAIT!! GET ORGANIZED!! If you agree with this statement, add your name to it!!! And do more than that: send it to friends, get them to sign it, organize a meeting, take it to your church, your school, your union, your health club, your barber shop, to concerts and libraries and family gatherings, everywhere you go. Raise money, lots of money. Get people together, make plans to be there on November 2, and to build for it.

The Call to Drive Out the Bush Regime
On November 2, people in 67 cities, 43 colleges and universities, and 90 high schools (at last count) are walking out of school and work and demonstrating to drive out the Bush regime.
Building up to November 2nd, this is what has happened already:
- Thousands have signed the Call to Drive Out the Bush Regime including Nobel Laureate Harold Pinter, Gore Vidal, Cindy Sheehan, Kurt Vonnegut, Alice Walker, Eve Ensler, Richard Serra, Jane Fonda, Jonathan Kozol, Howard Zinn, Michael Eric Dyson, Russell Banks, Cornel West, Michael Ratner, Ron Kovic, Mumia Abu-Jamal, Ed Asner, Deborah Glick (New York State Assemblywoman), Mark Leno (California Assemblyman), Tom Duane (NY State Senator), Tom Ammiano (San Francisco Board of Supervisors), Chris Daly (San Francisco Board of Supervisors), Kevin Powell, Boots Riley and Tom Morello [Go to website for quotes from the voices speaking out]. They join organizations like Code Pink, the Progressive Democrats of America, Democrats.com, the National Lawyers Guild, Haitian Coalition for Justice, ACT UP/NY, ANSWER/NY, the Campus Anti-War Network, and many others.
- A battle is brewing over high school students walking out in schools through out New York City. Clergy and lawyers are monitoring the situation on behalf of the students. A similar situation in Los Angeles with threats against student organizers and those intending to walk-out has resulted in a very two-sided battle with students defiantly proclaiming, “The administrators are using the same tactics as the Bush administration: fear. They are trying to scare us so we’ll back off and not walk out or go against Bush. What are these threats compared to what Bush is doing? They are nothing… F*ck their threats, we’re changing the world!” Go to http://www.worldcantwait
to read their message, RESIST OR DIE!
- In the four months since the WCW call was issued, chapters have been formed in 53 cities, with demonstrations taking place in another 14. The 34 states now covered are an equal mix of blue and red. Along with New York, San Francisco, Chicago, LA, there are demonstrations planned in Norfolk, Virginia; Burlington, Vermont; Chattanooga, Tennessee; Tulsa, Oklahoma; Hood River, Oregon; Boone, North Carolina; Great Falls, Montana; and Springfield, Missouri.
November 2, the first anniversary of Bush's "re-selection," will be the first major proclamation of an unprecedented and urgently needed social movement in this country: a movement aimed - not at this or that policy - but directly at driving out a regime.
The past week underscored just why a whole new level of opposition – this movement to Drive Out the Bush Regime - is needed, now! In the face of setbacks like the Miers withdrawal, Libby's indictment, global condemnation of US torture policy, the ongoing bloodbath in Iraq, and plummeting poll numbers, Bush nominates a far right winger to the Supreme Court.
November 2nd, as the beginning of this movement to drive out the Bush regime, is history in the making.
